Spot on. Adding the type attribute fixed it, I wasn't even aware of
the possible use of that attribute for link tags to stylesheets.
The validator doesn't seem to be bothered about the './' in the links,
but thanks Steve for the suggestion.
It seems they must uploaded a new validator, because not only has that
all changed without my having done anything, but by default I now get
a load of warnings  that I didn't get before.
And wheras I used to get a warning about overflow-y  not being
valid for CSS 2.1, it was only a warning before, whereas it is now by
default an error unless I specify profile=css3.
I guess I'm going to have to either server up different css to IE, or
find some other work around.
Thanks very much all, its lovely to have all  my tests passing again :-)
 All background-color not specified.
 I use overflow-y to avoid an IE scrollbar oddidty.
 Well, all of the ones in my control.
